Martin Clunes Net Worth $15 million

Born in Wimbledon, London, England, Clunes is the son of late actor Alec Clunes who died of lung cancer, and Daphne Clunes who worked for the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. He attended the Royal Russel School in Croydon, London during his younger years and continued his education at the Arts Educational School.

Clunes started his career in theatre, but later on made his way through television debuting in the show “Doctor Who” in 1983. During that same year, he also did some modelling with brand Gilbert and George, after which Clunes was able to land a regular job when he became part of the television show “No Place Like Home”, and followed it up with “All at No 20” in which he became part of the show for two series. His early shows started his career, and also increased his net worth.

One of the highlights of Clunes’ career came when he was cast for the TV show “Men Behaving Badly”, for which he won plenty of awards, and it became one of his most memorable performances. After the success of the show his career also flourished.

Clunes became one of the most sought-after actors, appearing in a number of movies and television programs including “Staggered”, “Hunting Venus”, “The Booze Cruise”, “An Evening with Gary Lineker” and “Saving Grace.” He also appeared in the movie “Shakespeare in Love.” His many works in movie and television increased his wealth tremendously.

In 2004, he became part of another television show that would make him even more well-known; he was cast in the lead role for the show “Doc Martin” in which he played the role of Doctor Martin Ellingham, the series of which are still being filmed, and earlier ones re-broadcast..

Aside from acting, Clunes is also known for his many documentaries. Some of his projects include “Martin Clunes: A Man and his Dogs”, “Martin Clunes: Man to Manta”, “Martin Clunes: The Lemurs of Madagascar”, and “Kids with Cameras: Diary of a Children’s Ward” to name a few. These documentaries shown in major television networks also helped him with his net worth.

Clunes is also active in philanthropy providing support to various charities like Comic Relief Charity for Survival International and African Initiatives, the Born Free Foundation, and the Terrence Higgins Trust.

In terms of his personal life, Clunes was married to Lucy Aston(1990-97), and has been married to Philippa Braithwaite, one of the producers of “Doc Martin”, since 1997 – they have a daughter and now live in Beaminster, Dorset.

1Prominent lips and ears that stick out
1[on his frequently ridiculed television debut in Doctor Who: Snakedance: Part One (1983)] They sort of disinvested in that programme..."It's successful, don't spend much on it." I was sort of top dog on that planet and I thought I was rather good but I was just rubbish.
2[on Churchill Insurance, who dropped him from their commercials after he was banned from driving for six months] I was very surprised by their reaction. It was neurotic and very heavy-handed. Quite rude, actually. They never said goodbye. They never said thanks. They washed their hands of me completely.
3Honestly, as I get older, I find it really hard to remember words like 'polymyalgia'. Some of these medical terms I can't even get out of my mouth. Some have to be written on the walls behind the characters with the diseases.
4I must point out that no babies were hurt in the making of the program this season. At heart I'm really a bunny- hugger .
5It's really such a liberating role. It's nice to be rough with the elderly, violent with children, and generally rude to everyone. But audiences seem to like it, wondering what kind of outrageous thing he will say or do next.
6[on the popularity of 'Doc Martin'] It always seems like such a surprise when another country sort of chimes in wholeheartedly, in a kind of epicurean way. Especially in the way it has been picked up in Canada and the US in almost cultish fashion. You're not going to be a cult in England when you're on mainstream TV.
7I don't do very well being away, and America starts to annoy me after a while. I just like the UK better - I couldn't go over there, it would drive me mad!
8"Jug ears and child-bearing lips" - his description of himself, said in a documentary about the making of Doc Martin (2004) which was shown in 2006.
9I think people need entertaining and they like being entertained. That's all I do. I don't do anything important, I just work in entertainment.
1The first single he bought was "Tears of a Clown" by Smokey Robinson.
2He's President of the British Horse Society.
3Both he and his father Alec Clunes worked with Claire Bloom: Alec in Richard III (1955) and Martin in Doc Martin (2004).
4He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2015 Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to drama, charity and the community in Dorset.
5He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2015 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Drama, Charity, and to the community in Dorset. He lives in Beaminster, Dorset, England.
6He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2015 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to drama and community in Dorset.
7His early TV appearance playing a camp alien prince on Doctor Who (1963) in 1983 has frequently been ridiculed in comedy clips shows and was mocked by Sir Michael Parkinson and Jonathan Ross when Clunes appeared as a guest on their respective talk shows. Clunes has admitted he is somewhat embarrassed by his performance in the serial Doctor Who: Snakedance: Part One (1983) and declined to contribute to any special features for the BBC's DVD release.
